On recommendations from members of this community, my interest in tubes has been piqued. I only have experience with solid state gear, so I don’t necessarily know how to best start exploring the tube world. Amazon has a bunch of inexpensive tube preamps like this:
Nobsound HiFi 6J1 Vacuum Tube Preamplifier Stereo PreAmp Digital Treble&Bass Tone Control (Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NBM7K8L/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_NhPhDbJEMJ5HE
Any thoughts on whether putting one of those between a DAC and a solid state amp - either headphone amp or speaker amp - would be a good enough starting point to see if I even like what tubes bring to the table? Or should I be looking elsewhere entirely? Budget is limited and I’m very much in the early ‘is this worth exploring further?’ phase. Thanks to all in advance!
